Sandy Cove Wedding Venue

I think it’s fair to say Sandy Cove in North Devon has perhaps the most beautiful aspect of any wedding venue along the North Devon coastline. The Venue is set in its own cove at the cliff top and provides the most breathtaking backdrop. I can remember the first time I visited and was just blown away by that view. Not only is the view from Sandy Cove spectacular but it is constantly shifting and evolving. It really is the perfect venue to hold your wedding. Now imagine having your wedding ceremony next to that gazebo with all your family and friends with that backdrop. I know it’s amazing. Who wouldn’t want that view in their wedding photographs?

Sandy Cove is the sort of venue that attracts a crowd that want a fully catered for experience. The food is pretty amazing too. You can watch the chefs prepare all that delicious food behind glass within The Venue.  The waiters sweep up the carefully prepared dishes and serve each table while you sit back and enjoy the fantastic hospitality. Even better in the summer with the big open glass doors where you can appreciate the magnificent scenery with the sound of the ocean and seagulls filtering through. It really is perfect! 

As I am a North Devon wedding photographer Sandy Cove is a venue I have been lucky enough to visit on many different occasions, I only live 30 minutes away. It is always fun to capture weddings at The Venue. It is one of my favourite wedding venues in North Devon without a doubt and I never tire of that perfect view.

After you have readied yourself for the ceremony; the long path leading up to the gazebo and your expectant partner is always an amazing and emotional moment. The nervousness and anticipation as you walk along with your father is palpable, and leads on to the most perfect wedding day. The beautiful scenery just enhances your ceremony as you say your vows. In those moments of quiet you will hear the gulls and the distant lapping of the surf on the shore. While you sign the register there is nothing but the sky walk between you and the ocean. It is so tranquil and romantic. You will love it. 

The sky walk is perhaps the most popular location to have those romantic photos you have dreamed of. It is such a classic wedding location.
